IX. Our Ceasing Voice — ..Dazzled Eyes Are Shu!/* 

{Austria hltp iv.yw my^acg.comouj^asaigvQC^ I 


Post-rock is known for itsepc crescendos. distorted, echo-drenched guitar-work and atmosphere, 
instrumental nature. The Austrian post-rodt quartet Our Ceasing Voice, however, seems less 
inclined to continuously destroy the listener s ears* instead focusing on the quieterstie of the fie W 
building drastic, yet l^jht inlroduclbns which fbat Ike an eerie but we to me met around your feet. 
As the songs grow, so loo does the fog. rising higher, thickening and eventually smothering the 
listener in an impending but vastly entertaining haze 

'Dazzled Eyes Are Shut." begins with atimd and hesitant persona that hypnotises and moans for 
the better pari of four minutes yet not once will does it ever become tedious So warm and ethereal 
H s that iis almost impossbk lo escape: when the fetter haf of the song beg us to build, so too 
does the listeners craving for the mandatory crescendo. By the last iwo minutes, there's nolhing to 
focus on but overwhelmingly epic guitars and wildly entertaining instrumental on and it 
demonstrates why post-rock should be your favourtle genre.
